Jobert,Marc
Often, the success of court actions depends upon the effectiveness of provisional remedies, conservatory measures or summary judgments taken before or in lieu of the main proceedings. A good decision, obtained after years of effort, is of no use if it cannot be enforced because the debtor's assets have disappeared. This text provides a guide through the web of preliminary actions that can be taken in order to ensure the successful seizing of assets. This practical guide answers questions such as: what is a Mareva Injunction and how can it be used effectively?; what is a refere, in France, Belgium and several other countries, and how can it save the plaintiff years of litigation?; and how can assets be seized in Hong Kong on the basis of a German judgment concerning an Australian living in Turkey? Within each country, each topic is clarified using a comprehensive example, which allows the reader to see the theory in action. "Summary Proceedings" covers the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Korea, Luxembourg, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey and the USA. 411pp.

Edited By Afshar, Haleh and Maynard, Mary
During the past decade, feminism and women's studies have been forced to acknowledge the diversities of women's experiences, as well as the patriarchal oppression that they share. The emphasis on difference has shattered the illusion of homogeneity and sisterhood which previously characterized white, middle class westernized feminist politics and analysis. There is relatively little work which concentrates on the inter-relationships of race and gender in general, and the consequences of racism, for women of different backgrounds, in particular. "The Dynamics of Race and Gender" aims to contribute to the debate and understanding in this area. Emphasis has been given to age, class, disability, race and sexuality. The contributors to this volume are from different religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, giving a balanced and broad ranging perspective on this important social question. Organized around three main themes, which are; issues of theory and method, questions of identity, racism and sexism at work, the chapters of this book indicate how the processes of "race" and gender interrelate in highly complex and contradictory ways. Demonstrating the benefits to be gained from analysing the interplay of various axes of differentiation in specific empirical and historical locations, and in doing so, under-scoring the point that diversity among women cannot be seen as a static phenomenon. 263pp. N.B.
